Populist President Hugo Chavez has urged Venezuelans to draw inspiration from the figure of Don Quixote.
. . .
"We're still oppressed by giants", the Venezuelan Minister of Culture, Francisco Sesto, told the BBC, "so we want the Venezuelan people to get to know better Don Quixote, who we see as a symbol of the struggle for justice and the righting of wrongs."
. . .
People in the Venezuelan capital Caracas have been queuing around the block to collect free copies of the Spanish masterpiece Don Quixote.
The Venezuelan government is handing out a million copies to mark the 400th anniversary of its publication.
The Palis on such an occasion would have been chanting something like: With our spirit and our blood, we will redeem you, Abu Quixote !!!
